Quoted from OCP2:

Exactly this, most of the time they play 1 ball and stop. I used to turn them on for guests, but now I only open them if they ask to play. I couldn’t care less, I buy pins for myself to enjoy.

We just had a Super Bowl party and usually I turn all of the games on for the get togethers. I didn’t turn anything on this time to see what the kids would play. Came upstairs to see air hockey, skeeball, and Super Bikes turned on. No pins on at all. The kids just don’t care. This was age 6-14.

I have a Bally Atlantis, which is actually a really good pin. But it's quite simple.

The simplicity and the rapid zooming of the ball around the playfield is actually quite entertaining. It's genuinely fun to play.

It's surprising how often that my TZ sits unused while people camp out on the Atlantis. I'm not just saying that, my TZ probably gets the least amount of play, especially when my party guests are playing.

(And no, I'm not saying that to pump the value of my Atlantis, I'll never sell it. I love the total lack of Political Correctness of it.)
